These prayer beads are formed of genuine Amethyst and Lapis beads with beautiful accent beads, Goddess charm and tassel. Stone beads are used to combine the powers of the stones with the meditation. The cord running through the beads symbolizes the thread of Life. Each mala has been made from small natural stone beads which are extremely difficult to make, each mala therefore is a work of art in itself and should be treated with care and respect. A mala is the most ancient form of a rosary, used to count the repetitions of a mantra, a prayer, as the spiritual self is trained. Each Japamala should only be used for repetitions of one particular mantra.
Amethyst: is also known for its healing powers, it has the ability to attract spiritual energies and to calm restlessness. Amethyst is the purple variety of quartz crystal composed of silicon dioxide with traces of iron. Helpful in ridding nightmares. Just hold the Amethyst crystal on the forehead for a minute and ask it to guide you through a peaceful sleep, then place it under your pillow. Also helpful to calm an overworked and over-stressed mind. It is thought to dispel negativity and create a peaceful environment.
Lapis: is a mixture of at least three minerals: lazurite, calcite & pyrite. Ground Lapis was the secret of the blue in ultramarine, the pigment which painters used to paint the sea and the sky until the nineteenth century. It was also ground up along with Malachite and used as eye makeup in Ancient Egypt. It was said to impart ancient knowledge, and the wisdom to use it and to enhance one's awareness, insight and intellect.
Together these stones form a beautiful combination for healing, meditation and spirituality. 8mm beads, 24" long.
